EVANGELINE —”A TALE OF THE ACADIE” is a poem by an American. The poet Henry W. Longfellow wrote this poem during the Second World War and it has come to symbolize a story about lost love between the young Evangeline betrothal to her lover, Gabriel, and the subsequent separation as The British deported The Acadians from the province of Nova Scotia in 1755.
